7:00pm
appears to be the motto of one of obama supporter in ohio. watch this. >> yes, i voted twice. >> richardson said she mailed in an absentee ballot, but fielder it would arrive too late to be counted. >> i certainly wanted my street count, so i voted. i voted at the polls. >> sean: voted twice. she admits to voting twice on her own behalf. the story does not end there. richardson also says that she mailed in an absentee ballot for her granddaughter despite the fact that her granddaughter voted in person on election day. now sadly i'm just getting started. three other absentee ballots reportedly came from richardson's home. they all contained similar handwritings, but let not your heart be troubled, there's a perfectly good explanation for all of this madness. watch. >> joseph jones is my brother. he's here from time to time. i'm mon says' power of attorney. i voted for her in her absence.
7:01pm
>> so were these all legal votes in your mind? >> absolutely legal votes. absolutely. >> now, the worst part about all of this, she's reportedly been a poll worker since 1988. i wonder how many times that she voted for michael dukakis? a lot of you are writing me right now about dr. carson, an amazing man, amazing speech that he gave. i put it up on my website. fox assassination has it up there as well. hannity.com, foxnation.com, it's worth watching. we'll have him back on next week. thank you for being with us. let not your heart be troubled. greta is next to go "on the record." >> greta: tonight from coast-to-coast, two huge simultaneously breaking news stories, on the west coast, the fired lapd officer accused in three murders is still on the loose, and he says he will kill again. and a weather alert on the east
7:02pm
coast. a dangerous winter storm is slamming millions. how bad is it, who's getting slammed, and who's next? the impact is giant. we have live fox news coverage, but first the manhunt for a cop accused in a murder spree. alicia acuna has more. alicia? >> the lapd is releasing the most recent images of chris dorner. take a look. police say they were taken from a surveillance video inside an elevator in a hotel in orange county on january 28th. now that is before police say the first shot was fired in the alleged crime spree, but law enforcement is hoping you might be able to help, because he could be anywhere. today police executed a search warrant on dorner's mother's home in a suburb of l.a. this, they say, was also his last known residence.
7:03pm
his mother and sister were home at the time and cops say they are and have been cooperating. now in terms of evidence, they took a laptop as well as several other items. law enforcement in las vegas are also preparing for the possibility that dorner is in their vicinity. police searched a home he owns there, and now officers are patrolling in pairs, as a precaution. this is the overnight portion near big bear lake in the mountains east of los angeles has been suspended until tomorrow morning. snow conditions have already grounded the air search, but the sno-cat and armored personnel carrier remains. according to court documents, in 2006, he filed for a restraining order against his ex-girlfriend, because she went on to a website called don'tdatehimgirl.com, put his police badge number on there, and also said that he was very paranoid and disturbed. greta?
7:04pm
>> greta: alicia, thank you. christopher dorner is the most hunted and feared man in the nation, accused of three cold-blooded murders, including a police officer, but dorner's college football coach says that is not the christopher dorner he knew. aaron alfred joins us. good evening, sir. >> how you doing? >> greta: very well. tell me, when did you meet him, under what circumstances, and what did you think of him then? >> i met him when i became a coach at southern utah university. that was 1999 and 2000. in those two years, the things you obviously are seeing on television, hearing in the news, don't -- obviously don't fit. they're ludicrous in that manner, just to think that he's gone to this level of violence and anger. but he was a good kid. you never heard anything negative. he stayed out of trouble, had good grades. we talked quite often while i was there. you know, there was nothing to speculate he would have this kind of issue. >> greta: in the manifesto that
7:05pm
he has published, he has had some chilling words about a number of things, but one of the things he talks about is integrity. he says, honor, courage and commitment are traits embedded in his dna. was he that type of serious-thinking person, hung up on integrity? did he discuss those things back then? >> yeah, he definitely was. i had an interview earlier, i talked about he was a very analytical kid, young man at the time. yes, he was serious. you know, so those things in his manifesto do definitely fit the characteristics of who he was in college, but, you know, he would -- i was just completely dumb founded and just at a loss when i found out this was chris dorner, because this was not the person anybody knew him back then, his teammates back then, anyone that was his friend up to a certain point, that wasn't the young man i knew.
7:06pm
>> greta: when was the last time you heard from him? >> i was talking to some of your affiliates earlier, colleagues earlier. the last time he called was hovering around 2007, 2008. he would call periodically just to check in and say hello, you know, because i obviously went on to different universities to coach college football. he would just keep in touch. the last i heard, he had called when i lived in ohio, and he was a navy reservist, was talking about -- he had talked about in college being a police -- being in the military, but then when he told me about being a police officer, which i don't know if he was already in the process, or had been hired or not, but he had talked about it. obviously he became a police officer. so it was about that time. >> greta: coach, thank you very much. thanks for joining us. >> yes. >> greta: and from college graduate to a navy reservist to a police officer, now to a wanted man. for a closer look at christopher
7:07pm
dorner's downward spiral l.a. "daily news" reporter mary cardoza joins us. what can you tell me about his life after he left college? >> after he left college, we know he got enlisted -- he enlisted in the navy in 2002. what we're learning is that, you know, when he was in police academy, he was having some issues, not issues with requirements at the academy, but complaining about his fellow recruits. apparently there were some racial comments, that he didn't like how officials dealt with those issues. in talking to a college buddy of his actually i did ask if racism was an issue in his life at all, because he brought that up while invests college. he did say, yeah, every once in a while he did talk about it, but no red flags to point to this. >> greta: all right. now when he felt wronged a few years ago, what led to him being fired he made an accusation
7:08pm
against a fellow officer about how the fellow officer conducted an arrest. he had a hearing, and he felt that he was wrongfully accused of lying in that hearing. is that right? >> yes. so again, you know, he -- many times he's made claims about -- he was complaining about some of his fellow officers. in this particular case it was a training officer. again, he was not happy with the way officials dealt with those issues. he felt they were racially spurred. so, you know, again, we were seeing that in his manifesto, those were some of the issues. >> greta: do you know what he's been doing in the six months prior to the first set of homicides last sunday? do you know what he's been doing with himself? >> we don't know that right now. i know my colleagues and certainly everybody that's been watching are wondering, you know, what happened. what triggered all of this, because that incident, you know, that is at the root of all of this is in 2008. we are looking into that, but i
7:09pm
can't speak to that right now. >> greta: any idea how he's supporting himself since 2008 until now? >> again, not sure what he has been doing since being let go. we do know that he was officially let go with the navy just earlier this month, on february 1st. >> >> greta: and he doesn't have -- doesn't appear that he has any friends left at the lapd. sounds like when he left he was sort of the odd-man out. is that right? >> yes, that what it seems to be. again, we've reached out to friends listed in the manifesto. i did speak to that one, but that one was from his college days when he played football in utah. again e only was able to speak about dorner before the navy, before police. >> greta: thank you very much. and police focusing their manhunt in big b>ar ever since find dorner's burned-out truck
7:10pm
there. have they found any clues? l.a. "daily news" reporter doug saunders has the latest from big bear. doug, any clues as to whether or not he's in that area? they found his burned-out truck, but any sign of him, any indication he's there? >> there are none. there are no signs that he's even on the mountain. >> greta: and did anyone see the car -- see him burn the car? did they just discover the car? >> no. they discovered the car burning. when they discovered it, they obviously went out and handled that situation. from there, they found foot tracks leading away from the vehicle that ended nowhere. >> greta: it's being reported tonight that the san bernardino sheriff's office says dorner's mother owns a parcel of undeveloped land about 18 miles from big bear lake. do you know anything about that land? i assume they've checked that by now. >> yeah. actually they checked that yesterday, before the winter
7:11pm
storm rolled in. they used their thermal imaging to see if there were any bunkers. there were no bunkers. there's no buildings on it whatsoever. >> greta: are they going, what, tonight door-to-door, from cabin to cabin, to make sure he's not holding people hostage in some cabin? >> correct. that's what they've been doing for the last -- well, the last two days. they've been going door-to-door, searching the mountain. they've had swat teams up on the mountain. they've had fbi tactical teams up there. and to this -- to this date, there's no sign of him. >> greta: he could be just about any place. he could be there, or even, you know, back in l.a., or he could be in irvine, on his way to mexico, any place at this hour. nobody knows. doug, thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: all right. this is obviously a very dangerous situation. we'll continue to monitor it throughout the hour. and as soon as any news breaks we'll immediately go back to california and get you that breaking news.
7:12pm
>> greta: this is a fox weather alert. right now wild blizzard battering the northeast. heavy snow and strong winds from new jersey to maine. the storm is literally paralyzing transportation across the nation. we have live coverage from the hardest-hit areas, but start first with meteorologist rick reichmuth in the fox extreme weather center. rick? >> greta, the snow getting going now. the two storms we've been watching, talking about the two storms that are going to combine. that process has happened. so the strengthening is going on right now. an incredible snowfall rates are occurring. that dark blue band right there produced over 5 inches of snow in just an hour. so you get those kinds of snowfall rates, and that's extreme. you see it now cutting from around parts of central long island through connecticut, and then headed up even toward the port smith, new hampshire, area. a big band of very heavy snow. along with that comes the incredible very heavy winds already. we've already seen winds gusting
7:13pm
over 71 miles an hour out across parts of the cape. the radar here, the future radar over the next number of hours. temperatures continue to fall. the snow remains heavy in new york city, all throughout connecticut. it begins to taper off on the western side of this by around 5:00 a.m. that's new york city and much of upstate new york. it continues until the afternoon tomorrow in boston, but the temps drop for everybody. so that means it's going to remain frozen all the way into tomorrow night we'll be seeing the roads remain frozen. take a look at where the winds are gusting right now. we've been up toward the 54-mile-an-hour range in boston. we're at 62 in nantucket. that's going to remain around that rate for probably about the next 6-7 hours. that means we'll continue to see storm surge and a lot of coastal flooding, areas that were impacted by sand panda partiall. a storm surge along with this, coinciding with a new moon tide tomorrow morning. unfortunately we'll see a lot of
7:14pm
damage with it. greta? >> greta: rick, thank you. we'll check back in with you later. now to the boston area where they are bracing for several peat of snow. fox news correspondent molly line is live in boston. molly, you've got not only the snow, but the 54-mile-an-hour wind that rick just talked about. >> absolutely brutal, greta. it's like you queued the wind. just came up even heavier as i'm standing here. the wind and snow coming down harder in the recent hours. the governor earlier today issued an executive order banning all nonessential travel on the highways. this of course being the highway. we just saw a plow going by. those are the folks allowed to be out here, the first responders, the firefighters, people involved in medical care for other people that need to get to local hospitals. those essential folks allowed to travel the roads. everybody else should stay home and stay put. that's the order from the governor. also the recommendation from boston's mayor today. they've called in the national guard here in the state to be ready to help out. they have utility crews waiting in hotel rooms all across the
7:15pm
state to get the lights turned back on tomorrow. right now the numbers are about 40,000 people without power. a lot of those folks are in the south shore, south of the city of boston, on cape cod. that's where the -- where the snow has been a bit heavier and damper. it's been more likely to bring down the trees and powerlines. but it's a long night ahead. the snow is expected to intensify, to continue overnight, and up to 3 feet is what we could be seeing here in boston. that's why they say this could be a history-making storm. greta? >> greta: molly, thank you. that wind at 54 miles an hour, that is fast and, you know, losing power in that cold temperatures, going to be brutal for so many people. thank you, molly. fox news correspondent jamie colby is live in midtown manhattan. jamie? >> greta, you know, it's virtually impossible to get wherever you want to go today, tonight, even tomorrow, no matter how you plan on traveling, which chris authorities are asking folks to stay home. they want you to take the storm seriously. fox news can now report at least
7:16pm
two deaths due to storm-related injuries. both car pile-ups. one a man lost control of his car and inten went into a tree. another car that lost control killed someone crossing the street, a pedestrian. also at the area airports, what a mess, greta. they're all close to shutdown right now with 4,000 to 5,000 flights canceled through sunday. already we're seeing many passengers who tried to outsmart the system. they went from one airport to another airport, trying to hop on a flight. they were left stranded at least for now. many airlines also waving the fees to change flights. or if your flight gets canceled, trying to cut travelers a break, but some airlines will get stuck paying those fines for keeping folks aboard flights that planned to take off and didn't for too long. also, i want to tell you a little bit about the roads. in rhode island, parts of i-95 are completely shut down. there's a car ban in
7:17pm
massachusetts. if it's not essential travel. and authorities want the streets clear, not only to keep all of us safe, but also to be able to plow as they are behind me at this hour. they're continuing to do that. the bottom line is, take it seriously. stay home if you can. if you don't have what you thought you needed, it's too late. greta? >> greta: jamie, thank you. and it is going to be a very long night for millions and millions of people as this dangerous storm pummels the northeast. there's more live coverage coming throughout the hour. also we are continuing to follow breaking news in california. the manhunt for the fired cop accused of gunning down three people, including a police officer. he says he will kill again. we have another live update coming up. and, well, she's back. the teen who flipped the bird at a judge is back in court. what did she do this time and how did the judge react? you'll see for yourself. that's next. my doctor told me calcium is efficiently absorbed in small continuous amounts. citracal slow release continuously releases calcium plus d

7:24pm
going to pay her fine. i was going pay the fine, ted was going to do the 30 days in jail. i love the woman. the whole thing went viral. you can see what happens when she gets a lawyer, comes in and reserved. of course it's not penelope talking. it's some guy in a suit. >> greta, i went home and read greta wired tonight, and every one of your fans -- >> greta: they're not all fans. have you seen some of the things they say about me? >> -- they rated us. guess what. i agree with them. they were right. i was not in on the bet with grimm. this woman needs to learn to respect the court. i'm happy with what happened to her. i hope she now learns a lesson. as one of your people, josh mccarroll said, maybe she'll become a lawyer some day. >> greta: jim, now that ted has changed his opinion based on comments on the internet -- h@>> like a hot pancake. >> yeah. >> listen, if bernie really
7:25pm
believes what he said, he should have the courage of his convictions, to try to walk into court and say the same words. profile bring his toothbrush, because he'll be in jail for a while. this judge is one of my new heroes. she's the luckiest young women in america today. he called it right, sentencing her to jail for 30 days. i don't believe the xanax thing, she's a punk, a jerk, and got lucky. >> greta: i didn't like the idea of 30 days, because i didn't think the public should have to pay for her. this judge scared her, gave her a taste of her obnoxious medicine, let her go after five days. >> oh, my god. jim, we haven't see you in years, you come back and you call an 18-year-old woman a punk. >> and a jerk.
7:26pm

7:31pm
>> >> greta: this is a fox news alert. fear is gripping communities across california. the fired lapd officer accused in three murders still on the loose, armed and dangerous, and looking to kill again. let's go back live to fox news correspondent alicia acuna at lapd headquarters. alicia? >> hi, greta. the lapd remains on alert, all hands on deck. this all started on sunday night. two people shot and killed in a condo parking garage in irvine, california. the next day, police find an online manifesto written by former l.a. cop, christopher dorner, linking him to the victims in irvine. in that manifesto, he declares war on the lapd for firing him in 2008. dorner is quickly named a suspect, and the hunt is on. fast-forward to the wee hours of
7:32pm
yesterday morning. dorner allegedly opens fire on police officers in corona and riverside, california, killing one and critically injuring another. police put out on the word to be on the lookout for a blue or gray nissan pickup truck, the model of car dorner was known to be driving. late thursday morning came word of a burned-out truck in big bear, california. it's dorner's car. the massive manhunt moves to the mountains of big bear, on foot and by air. schools in the ski resort shut down as dozens of police combed the wooded area for any sign of dorner. several hours of snow made conditions difficult and grounded the air search. now today u.s. marshals and the irvin police department executed a search warrant at the house of dorner's mother. they say it's his last known residence. police questioned dorner's mom and sister and removed several bags of evidence, including a laptop computer. and the manhunt, while focused on big bear, has now spread to
7:33pm
arizona, nevada, and all over california. greta? >> greta: alicia, thank you. and now to two california women shot by police in the midst of this manhunt, officers firing on the women because their pickup truck is similar to the suspect's. turns out the women, one age 71, the other 47, were just delivering newspapers. police are obviously very much on the edge, knowing they're also the targets of the accused cop killer they're looking for. former washington, d.c. homicide detective ted williams is still with us. ted, you know, it's almost unheard of. i mean, police officers that they accidentally shot a 71-year-old woman and a 47-year-old woman because the panic is just so gripping out there, isn't it? >> it really is, greta. these are good men and women on the police department out there. all they want to do is to do their job for the citizens of that jurisdiction and go home at night. the sad commentary is all of a sudden there's a bull's eye, a target on them. so there's a heightened sense of
7:34pm
alert. so as a result of that, unfortunate because they were looking for a blue pickup truck. sadly they wound in these two shootings. >> imagine, all they saw was a blue pickup truck in an area where they were apparently looking to watch for people who need to be protected. and they spotted two women delivering newspapers get the back of the car gets shot out just because it looks like the truck that -- or the car that this cop had been driving, former cop. >> yeah, yeah. and let's make it clear, this guy is a coward. he's not anything associated with police as far as i'm concerned. but having said that, i can understand these police officers. look, they didn't purposely want to harm any people -- >> it shows the level of fear, panic, everything else, that's gripping this community, the fact this would happen. it shows just how -- we're 3,000 miles away. so we don't quite feel the panic that this community does, the police do.
7:35pm
>> you're absolutely right. these law enforcement officers have read the manifesto that talks about how he wants to target them. not only them, but their relatives, too. this puts them in a different kind of sense of alert. as a result of this, they unfortunately had these two shootings. i don't think they want this. they're trying their best to get this man and get him as fast and expeditiously as they can. >> greta: the two women are alive, who were accidentally shot. one more seriously than the other. apparently one was released. they'll both live. the police know that when they do catch up with this guy, if he isn't dead by now, having committed suicide, they know that he's going to try to shoot his way out. he's going to try to kill them. >> greta, no doubt about it. one of my concerns is the guy is not dead, probably alive, watching a show like ours. probably has his head in a hole watching the show. he's a coward. he ambushed people. he killed people.
7:36pm
i hope they get him soon. i think they will, greta. >> if he is watching, it would be wise to do the decent thing and surrender himself. >> he doesn't have to kind of decentsy. i think he'll go out suicide by cop. >> greta: thank you, ted. coming up, a blizzard that's clobbering the northeast. 50 million people are in its path. 50 million. it's amazing. we'll take you live to the hardest-hit areas straight ahead. in two minutes president obama is getting ready to give his state of the union speech. what do you think about the state of our union right now? are you thinking what a lot of other americans are thinking? you're about to find out. that's two minutes away.

7:39pm
only 40% say the worst is over. and listen to this. a 58% majority thinks the federal government has become too powerful and is restricting american freedoms. only 38% say they are comfortable with the government's role right now. and it gets worse. wait until you see these numbers. when asked about the current power of the united states, 48% said the country is weaker, less powerful, it was five years ago. now that is twice as many as the 24% who see the country as stronger and more powerful. what do you think? is the country weaker today it was five years ago? this is your chance. go-to gretawire.com and tell us. we're back in two minutes.

7:41pm
>> greta: this is a fox extreme weather alert. right now a record-breaking blizzard is pummeling the northeast. the massive storm threatening to dump a record amount of snow on several states. an update forecast in minutes, but first fox news correspondent
7:42pm
molly line in boston. molly, has it gotten any better? >> no, not at all! these are still whiteout conditions. that's why the governor is asking people to stay off the roads. that's why the mayor here in boston is asking people to stay inside. they want to ensure that the first responders can get from place to place, to the places they need to be, without responding to a lot of accidents and that sort of thing. these are the types of conditions that would certainly cause accidents. brutal winds, deep snow, snow that continues to pile up. i was standing on ground earlier today. now i'm standing on 6 to 10 inches of snow depending on where i put my feet. so it's been brutal. all throughout the night, we're expecting to get possibly another 12 inches to another 16 inches across this area. an astounding amount of snow coming down. that's why this could be a historical storm. they're also calling in the national guard to help out in the situation. there have been over 40,000 people that have lost power. right now we're at about high tide. so there's some concerns about flooding. at 10:00 this evening, at 10:00 tomorrow, that's when they're
7:43pm
watching the low-lying areas that can flood from the ocean waters. so there's a lot going on out there. authorities and firefighters and first responders are worried about it. they won't be able to assess the situation until tomorrow. that's when the utility crews will be able to get out, start working and turn power back on. we still have a long night ahead and more power outages predicted to come. greta? >> greta: molly, thank you. of course the emphasis by the governor is to stay off the road. they don't need more people on the roads in massachusetts. if you're watching, if you still have power, stay off the roads. good luck to all those people up there. molly, thank you. we'll go back to the fox extreme weather center for an update on the storm's wicked path in just a few minutes, but now to a building controversy, drone gate. a growing number of lawmakers demanding answers about the constitutionality of the president's power to use drones to kill americans overseas. republican senator chuck grassley and democrat patrick leally teaming up to write a
7:44pm
letter to president obama. senator grassley, nice to see you. >> always nice to be with you, greta. you have a nice program. you're always nice to get along with. >> tell my husband you said that. >> okay. >> greta: now to the letter. you and senator leahy wrote a letter to president obama asking for what? > we're asking for exactly the same information that he released yesterday to the committee on intelligence of the united states senate, and i presume the house of representatives, which is the legal documents and memos from the office of legal counsel of the department of justice for the president to decide whether
7:45pm
it's okay to use drones to kill american citizens. >> you wrote him in 2011. he ignored you then. what makes you think you'll get the answer now? >> senator leahy also wrote a separate letter in the fall of 2011. and then we finally get the attention of the president when nine of us, including leahy and this senator, signed a letter, members of the intelligence committee, and other senators for the same information. >> greta: two questions. one is, if this is part of your oversight responsibility, and they haven't answered you before, bipartisan letters, do you think the president is dodging you on oversight? that's the first question. the second question is, do you have some problems with the -- do you question the constitutionality of an american drone program targeting americans on foreign soil based on suspicion of association with al-qaeda? do you think that goes beyond the constitutional powers of the president?
7:46pm
>> well, in the first question, we have a constitutional right to have it as a matter of oversight. yes. on the second question, i guess i do have some questions about the constitutionality of the president's authority, but i'm not going to make that final determination until i read the memos and the papers that come from the office of legal counsel, the department of justice. >> greta: but senator, if it's not going to be forthcoming, it's information f you've previously requested it, in the fall of 2011, and if senator leahy, a democrat has previously requested it in the fall of 2011, and i suspect you never even got -- did you ever get a reply letter, a response to your letters? >> we got the same information in a private briefing that came out in the -- in the release that -- that was called a white paper that came out on monday or tuesday, which isn't -- isn't the information we want. that just kind of tells about
7:47pm
how it works out, and some idea of why the president has a constitutional authority to do, this but it's got nothing to do with the legal arguments and the legal basis that the office of legal counsel uses and the department of justice to say that the president could go ahead and determine what american citizens to kill or not to kill. >> greta: all right. one quick last question. do you suspect they've been dodging the oversight, that they haven't been forthcoming with information they should have given to you? >> yes. let me give you a little longer answer to that. the answer is yes. the answer is the only reason they've done it so far is because of the nomination of the cia director. and secondly, we have had like information in the past. in other words, if the president is using as an excuse not to give us this information because it violates national security and might harm national security, they never had any
7:48pm
problem in releasing this information to those of us in the congress of why there was a justification for interrogation of noncombatants in the bush administration. they were willing to release it at that time to embarrass the bush administration, but for sure they don't want to release anything that might embarrass the obama administration. >> greta: senator, thank you, sir. let us know if you get a reply to yours and senator leahy's letter. thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: and straight ahead, an accused cop killer leaving behind a chilling manifesto. what does he have to say to tim tebow, first lead michelle obama, and former secretary of state hillary clinton in that manifesto? that's next.

>> greta: a murder rampage spelled out in a about chilling manifesto. we take a look at the words of christen dorner. >> of course he knows what he's doing. we trained him. >> a manhunt for one of their own. >> he was also a member of the armed forces. >> trained to kill. >> dorner is to be considered armed and extremely dangerous. >> in a manifesto targeting l.a.'s finest. >> if you read this manifesto, lapd is a specific target. this is a vendetta against all
7:53pm
of southern california law enforcement. >> it's addressed to america. subject? last resort. 14 pages and more than 11,000 words from a man consumed with anger and resentment, hell-bent on killing. dorner writes, this is my last resort. the lapd has suppressed the truth and it's now led to deadly consequences. your day has come. he continues, the level of violence will be high. i am the reason tack alert was established. i will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those on and off duty. >> it's scary, especially to the police officers involved. >> his main grievance? his firing in 2009. quote, self preservation is no longer important to me. i do not fear death as i died long ago.

it's a culture he intends to change. quote, the culture of the lapd versus the community and honest good officers needs to and will change. i am here to correct and cat brought your moral compasses to true north. at times he implores the media to set the record straight. quote, journalists, i want you to investigate every location i resided in growing up, find any incidences where i was ever accused of being a bully. you won't, because it doesn't exist. ironically, it addresses gun control. quote, mia farrow said it best, gun control is no longer debatable. it's not a conversation. it's a moral mandate, but eventually it evolves into nothing more than absurd ramblings, name dropping celebrities, politicians and members of various news networks. he invokes tim tebow. quote, i really wanted to see you take charge of an offense again in the game. you're not a good qb by today's standards, but you are a great
